How do I set the timer?

The Anova app is the best way to help you cook like a pro, but you can set the timer directly on your cooker.

For Anova Precision® Cooker, Anova Precision® Cooker Nano, and Anova Precision® Cooker Pro:

  1. Press the Timer button Screen_Shot_2019-08-05_at_1.30.08_PM.png.
  2. Press the + or - buttons to select the desired time (timer is displayed in HH:MM (hours:minutes)). Press and hold + or - buttons to rapidly increase time.

  3. Once desired time is displayed press the Timer button Screen_Shot_2019-08-05_at_1.30.08_PM.png  to set the desired time and press the Pause/Play button Play_Pause.png  to initiate a cook.
